a lead. i'm talking about iowa, colorado, new hampshire, ohio, nevada, all states where president obama's doing very well. at least as competitive with romney. if mitt romney wins the states in his base, plus the two where he's leading, he only gets to 235 electoral votes, he needs many more to get elected. president obama would have many more, 303. so what mitt romney's got to do is figure a way to take some of those states away from the president. virginia, florida, ohio, colorado, iowa. that's where the election's going to be decided. mitt romney easily got a hill to climb the last 24 hours but nobody can say he can't do it. >> very good, thanks john, we appreciate it. on the eve of the election it's still the economy. that's still issue number one. which candidate offers a stronger pro-growth plan for the economy? let's bring in robert rice, former labor secretary and cnbc contributor, author of "beyond outrage." and stove moore, author of "return to prosperity." i want to make it short and sweet and simple. robert rice, who has the better economic growth program? >> barack obama. >

. give everything else to mitt romney. florida, nu/"carolina, virginia, iowa, colorado, nevada -- which is tough for romney. we get to 269-269. then it goes to congress. the house of representatives picks the president. we have a republican house and will have one after this election. that means mitt romney assuming no elector defects to one side or the other. the house of representatives would elect mitt romney president. but the senate elects the vice president. that means joe biden could serve with mitt romney. crazy and i don't expect it to happen. but not beyond the realm of possibility. >> you have biden in cleveland, romney there, too. is that a lack of confidence in ohio? >> i think that suggests a determination not to relax on the final day. the president will do media interviews from home in chicago. mitt romney is out on the stump. i think so is paul ryan for that matter. joe biden is ensuring the democrats aren't leaving anything set in ohio unanswered. >> john, thanks so much. going to be a long night. we'll look forward to your reports throughout the evening. history shows

year but probably safely in the obama camp. the one place you might want to look here, nevada, florida, north carolina and virginia. those are all potentially in play because they had some improvement in the unemployment rate and if that had not been there, they might have been for romney. i would like to give you a definitive answer. you have the level of unemployment and you have the change. that's what makes this a horse race, simon. >> it's fascinating to see that the way you slice and dice going into the election whether it's turnout or amazing. steve, thank you very much. as the race for the presidency enters its final lap, what about concerns of small businesses? we'll put them on the television next going straight to the source and sitting down with co-founder and co-ceo of warby parker. they make glasses online and they'll open the first store in manhattan very soon. see what they have to say. interesting take. try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores
